Atkinson's hat trick leads Blue Jackets past Hurricanes 4-1

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Cam Atkinson anchored a top line that caused the Carolina Hurricanes fits Saturday night as the Columbus Blue Jackets won 4-1 for their fifth victory in six games.

Atkinson scored three goals and assisted on another, and fellow winger Artemi Panarin assisted on all of Atkinson's goals. Columbus center Pierre-Luc Dubois added two assists as Atkinson stretched his goal-scoring streak to six games.

"For all we talk about our balanced scoring, it's nice to have that one line that can do what they did tonight and really take a game over," said Blue Jackets assistant coach Brad Shaw, who spoke to the media after the game because head coach John Tortorella was ill.
